Great looking truck. I would love a 60-61 Suburban to go with my 61 pickup. Yours is great, and I love the family heirloom story. Vehicles are great, but their stories really make them special. Unfortunately, most stories are lost to time and through the hands of many owners.

Our big annual Medford Show-n-Shine and evening cruise is coming up Saturday. So I took the one ton Suburban to the car wash today to get it ready. I also filled up with gas (ethanol free) while I was out. I was amazed when the pump clicked off at EXACTLY $100.00. That only bought me 25 gallons of the good stuff ($3.999/gallon). With the two 20 gallon tanks, I still had 15 gallons in reserve. I added some STA-BIL too, since I don't put that many miles on it.

Yesterday was our annual Medford Show 'n Shine. I got a surprise when I opened this morning's paper. This was on the front page with a big headline:

"Record 500 cars displayed at Show ’n Shine

by Nick Morgan, Medford Mail Tribune

Posted Jun 17, 2017

Amid a bevy of Bel Airs, Corvette convertibles and marvelously restored Mustangs, Ed Snyder of Jacksonville’s patinaed GMC Suburban was a different breed of classic, though cherished the same as the pride and joy of hundreds of others.

The teal blue paint on Snyder’s rig has faded, and salt from the harsh Kansas winters where his father drove it for 49 years left a rusty tinge in places, but Snyder said he wouldn’t change a thing on the truck, which has been in his family since May 28, 1965, when his father took delivery in Wichita, Kansas. For Snyder, it’s a memory machine.

“It’s only original once,” Snyder said. “That’s the way it’s looked since 1965 — it’s just acquired some battle scars over the years.”

If every car has a story to tell, there were some 650 of them at the Medford Cruise Show ’n Shine Saturday morning at Fichtner-Mainwaring Park, including a record 500 cars from model years before 1979, according to Medford Cruise Vice President Bill Maentz."

Here are a few photos from the show yesterday. I liked that unrestored '67 International.

HEY check out the "Like" button Jeannie added! cool!

Ed, you and Pete probably have the best trucks that represent Fathers Day on the entire 'net! I got your email too. It sure seems survivor trucks like yours and that International are getting very popular. I got no GMC's of Dad's but I have one of Mom's.

I noticed that the International has a "Miro-Flare" on the ground in front of it. Several years ago I was buying some parts from a '55 GMC at a local "Pull a Part" and a whole set of them were in the box of the truck plus one extra. I thought they were cool and bought them too. I bead blasted and painted them to be wall hangers in the shop. Well about a year later I found info that they were offered as an optional accessory from GMC in '55 and '56 and maybe more years. They had probably been with that parts truck since they were new! Now I wish I would have left them rusty to match my '55.

Thanks for the update, Cool paper article, Ed. Hope you and your Dad had a great Father's Day.

I called my 92 year old Dad to wish him a Happy Father's Day, Doug. He was eating cake and ice cream with one of my brothers and one of my sisters and their spouses. He was pretty excited to hear about his old Suburban being on the front page of today's paper here. I'll be sending him a copy of the article.

We watched for you among the spectators at the cruise, TJ. Now I know why we didn't see you. We did a couple of laps, then parked to watch the others cruise by. Towards the end we did a couple more laps. The Suburban always gets lots of attention.
